  • Strategies for overcoming environmental roadblocks to group formation, such as agency staff lack of support for groups
  • Key practices to consider when organizing groups
  • Practical guidance on how to attract the “right” members to the “right” groups
  • Concrete suggestions for organizing, marketing, recruiting, screening, selecting, and composing groups
  • Differentiation between groups that are remedial in purpose from those that are more preventive in scope
How to Form a Group is part of the Group Work Practice Kit: Improving the Everyday Practice of Group Work, a collection of nine books each authored by scholars in the specific field of group work. To promote a consistent reading experience, the books in the collection conform to editor Robert K. Conyne’s outline.
